Rubi and Lopetegui will meet again next Thursday.

Many looks are already directed to the derby that will reopen The leaguenext Thursday and the technicians of Seville and Betis They try to draw the first sketch of some alignments that keep many doubts in the air a few days after the crash. Both Lopetegui and Rubi are considering solutions to the foreseeable problems that will be encountered in their last days of preparation.

Lopetegui is perhaps clearer about his bet. Vaclik and his defensive line are almost untouchable, since it will be Koundé who shares behind with Diego Carlos. In its core it shuffles more variants: Gudelj is penalized, while Fernando is the untouchable pivot and Joan Jordán has many ballots to make a hole in the eleven. As a game builder, Banega has an advantage over Óliver Torres, although there is also the option that both share ownership and that Jordan be the sacrificed. Lopetegui will reinforce your bet on De Jong, who was already decisive in the derby of the first round, while Ocampos is untouchable in whichever lane of the attack he touches. That will depend on Suso: If he does not recover, Nolito could enter the scene by having more confidence on the part of the coach than Munir or Rony Lopes.

Rubi has more doubts when composing his eleven. Joaquín focuses his sights: if the portuense does not reach one hundred percent, the technician will pull Tello, who would accompany Fekir and Loren. The puzzle is in the middle of the field. Edgar is almost ruled out due to injury and it seems unlikely that the pivot is William Carvalho, after numerous days in which he had a specific work plan. That would give a starting ticket to the Argentine Guido Rodríguez, come last winter. Canales and Guardado would be with him in making decisions. Back, advantage for Mandi looking to accompany Bartra, with Emerson and Álex Moreno in the lanes. With fifteen days less preparation in the Sports City, It does not seem that Joel Robles is having trouble being the chosen one in goal.

Both Lopetegui and Rubi still have several doubts within a few days of the expected Sevillian derby behind closed doors, which will mark the restart of the maximum Spanish competition.
